Police officer to die by hanging for killing 3-year-old girl

For unlawful shooting and killing of a three year old girl,an Ikeja High Court in Lagos, on Thursday sentenced a police officer, Ikechukwu Nwabueze, to death by hanging.
Nwabueze, who was arraigned on June 15, 2010 by the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions, had pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against him but after much investigations, Justice Olabisi Akinlade, found the 35-year-old former policeman guilty of murder charge.
Narrating the ugly incident that led to the arrest and prosecution of Nwabueze, Mrs Olabisi Ogungbesan, the Director of Public Prosecution, said the ex corporal on April 5, 2009 at a police check-point at Ketu-Alapere, Lagos, shot at a Nissan Sunny car conveying the deceased and her parents.
Ogungbesan said the incident occurred at Obanle Aro bus stop, Ketu-Alarape at about 9.30 pm when little Kasufara muritala and her parents were returning from a naming ceremony. Suddenly, they were attacked by some policemen. Saliu Muritala, the girl’s father was hit on his hand while the little girl received a straight bullet on her head. Luckily, Mrs. Muritala escaped unhurt.
On sighting the bleeding father and his dead daughter, the five policemen from Alarepe Police Station, including Nwabueze, who caused the mayhem fled from the check point.
In her judgment, Akinlade held that the prosecution proved its case against Nwabueze beyond all reasonable doubt.
She disclosed that the defendant in his confessional statement to the police after his arrest, had admitted shooting at the rear of the car but not with the intention to kill the deceased, which she saw as a flimsy excuse and not acceptable by law.

Tope Alabi In Trouble Over Controversial Statement... PFN Challenges Her

Click for Full Image Size
The Pentecostal Federation of Nigeria, PFN, has raised a challenge against the singer asking her to produce the name of Pastors pestering her for sex in order to avoid shame to the body of Christ.
In a statement, the official wrote, “it is not impossible that a pastor pestered her for sex as she claimed, but she needs to come out and name such an individual in order to teach others a lesson and cleanse the body of bad eggs.

Making such unsubstantiated claims on the pages of newspapers will not make any impact but rather bring shame to the body of Christ. She knows the proper channel to follow to report something like that.”

As at the time this report, Mrs Tope Alabi is yet to reply to the allegations.

Hopefully she will tell them the names of the fake Pastors pestering her for sex. We shall keep you posted as event unfold.

Makeup Secrets of Rita Dominic’s ‘The Meeting’

As soon as the press materials and pictures of the highly anticipated movie, The Meeting was released, one of the talking points of the movie was the ‘’special effect makeup’’ of the stars especially that of Rita Dominic who played the role of Clara Ikemba who was made to look like a woman in her 50s.
Some unsuspecting fans even went as far as believing that Rita must have suddenly aged and her 50 year old look must have been the side effects of years of heavy makeup.
However, the makeup artiste behind the makeup, Jennifer Joe-­Alegieuno has opened up on how she was able to achieve the spectacular feat. According to the South Africa trained artiste, turning a diva into Clara was really exciting. According to her:

Goldie says Kenya ‘feels like home’

Flashback: Domitilla - I still remember the movie but a blurry remembrance about it tho and am sure the name of the movie rings a bell to alot of people...nice passed a good message that Ashewo no be work’ remains as relevant as ever.

Ann Njemanze
Anyone who saw the 1996 movie, Domitilla will attest to the fact that its success was derived largely from the media buzz it enjoyed. With Ann Njemanze, Enebeli Elebuwa, Kate Henshaw, Basorge Tariah Jnr and Sandra Achums, all lighting up the screen, the movie was an instant box office hit.
Directed by Zeb Ejiro, and unlike Ken Nnebue’s 1994 film, Glamour Girls, it did not have very suggestive sex scenes or nudity despite the suggestive trailers, posters and movie jacket.
Interestingly, this did not stop the movie from becoming a commercial success while its catchy title gradually found its way into the Nigerian lexicon (denoting a prostitute).
Revealing the life of an average prostitute and quest for survival, it was a combination of serious humour, empathy and emotion, all struggling for a place in the heart of the viewer. Although the lead character, Njemanze, had earlier starred in an equally successful movie, True Confession, her role in Domitilla saw her assume star status. She was quoted as saying,”I had to travel to Edo State to learn how to speak their kind of Pidgin English. I also had to shed some weight and hang out with prostitutes at popular joints in Lagos to understudy them. To play Domittila, the only thing we didn’t do was to sleep with them in their brothels, it paid off at last’’.
The film, which spawned a second part, made the likes of Ada Ameh and Alex Lopez instant celebrities. 16 years after its release, the movie’s dominant message ‘Ashewo no be work’ remains as relevant as ever.

Timaya denies reconciling with Empress Njamah

Empress and Timaya

Afro-pop singer, Timaya, has denied the rumour making the rounds that he has made up with his former lover and Nigerian actress, Empress Njamah.
It all began when the former lovers who went through a very public fight which led to separation in 2009, hooked up at 2face Idibia‘s 37th birthday party held recently at Club Rumours, G.R.A, Ikeja, Lagos.
Although both parties carefully avoided contact with cameras at the event, Timaya was later sighted whispering into Njamah’s ears and they both laughed.

When contacted, Timaya said, “It is true that Empress and I met at Tuface’s party and greeted each other as old friends, nothing more. This whole speculation about reconciliation is spurious and baseless. I am happy with my partner, daughter and career and I am sure she is with her new life too.”
In May 2012, the singer – real names Enetimi Odom – who welcomed his first child from his love, Babara, said that as much as he loves and cherishes baby and mother, he is not thinking of getting married to her or any other woman yet.

Ladies...Let us go on a train on how to manipulate men


Do women manipulate men? Most women try but fail to manipulate their man convincingly. Here’s a complete know-how to manipulating men in the easiest possible manner.

#6 “Fine! I’ll do it on my own!”
Emotional blackmail. Guys can’t stand it, but they also can’t do anything about it.
So the next time he says he won’t come shopping with you or walking you to the salon, don’t fly off into a fit of fuming rage.
Just manipulate his mind and say, “Fine, I’ll go alone, because none of my other friends are free. If they were free, I wouldn’t have asked you anyways. It may be a little late in the evening, but then, that’s okay. It’s not like the city is not safe for girls to travel alone.”
Oh, and don’t forget to wear your best martyr expression, and make sure it’s wee bit hurt, wee bit let down.
